    The rocket has landed..Where else but Coney Island..

    For all the weeks I've gone to Coney I never noticed anything new except everything, meaning nothing stood out but this past Saturday I saw this rocket. And it was strange as everyday people were just sitting around it and I thought, "But it's a rocket." I'm lame, so here are the pictures and history. Actually it is just another reason why I like my favorite place..
    The rocket shown currently living under Deno's Wonder Wheel, was actually once a ride in Astroland, although I don't remember it. Then it landed on the rooftop of a restaurant, then to Staten Island where it got damaged during hurricane Sandy. Now it's been returned to Coney island for a restoration exhibit soon to be restored.
    Thank you.
